About Restraints of Trade

Our law recognize that an employer my have an interest it wants to protect its own confidential information being used by a former employee now working for a competitor. There is a principle that contracts voluntarily entered into must be complied with and that such contracts will be enforced by the Courts if needed. But there is another principle that contracts that are against public interests will not be enforceable. Each case, depends on its own facts, and each restraint of trade clause differs.
